My Journey in Fitness

When I was a young student-athlete, there was nobody around who could communicate the science of sports nutrition, recovery, and strength and conditioning in an understandable way. The only advice I received was based on research done on male athletes; there wasn’t any available evidence on how to train, eat, or recover as a female athlete: Historically, training strategies designed for the male body were also used for female training programs, disregarding the differences between male and female body chemistry. I decided to become the expert I so badly needed when I was younger.

I founded The Hype Wellness to use my expertise to help other women feel healthy and at peace with their bodies. I provide science-backed coaching on nutrition, exercise, and the mind-body connection. My philosophy focuses on reframing the relationship people have with food and exercise and finding the right balance, not following the latest diet! With each of my clients, I take a truly individualized approach, curating interventions to each person’s specific goals, needs, and lifestyle, because everybody is unique.

Outside of fitness coaching, I love working with female-led businesses to educate young women and LGBTQIA+ communities about nutrition and exercise. I’m overjoyed to join Flo as a health and exercise expert and have a positive impact on the lives of our users worldwide.
